At Dentistree, we offer fissure sealants for teeth to help provide protection from tooth decay. Fissure sealant is a tooth coloured liquid which is applied on the chewing surface of adult molar teeth to prevent cavities from forming in early years. Once applied, the coating is permanent and will stay on for a number of years.

Food particles can become trapped and this creates a perfect breeding ground for plaque bacteria which if left, will generate cavities. Fissure sealants for teeth work by filling the deep pits and grooves, making it easier to clean your teeth and prevent cavities from forming.
